Men and women advanced graduate students and new faculty are invited to attend a skills-based professional development workshop. Modeled on leadership workshops in MBA programs, the workshop will explore different ways that women faculty navigate the challenges they face in their institutions and provide attendees with specific strategies and concrete skills. In addition, a panel of women psychologists who have taken leadership roles at journals, in professional societies, and at their universities will share their experiences and offer guidance.

Comments from previous attendees
"I went away with the understanding that I need to be mindful of my career choices (especially around service) now because they will impact me in the future; but it's important to be authentic in what I choose to commit to. "
" I felt more comfortable voicing my professional concerns, especially ones that are relevant to women (e.g., not being firm enough with students), because the audience was all women. "
